Located on the ground floor of Building 879 the Fitness Studio is the latest addition to the always evolving range of facilities at the campus.
As part of the pilot program we’re pleased to announce that access to the Fitness Studio will be free to all staff and full-time students of the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music until December 2019. To take advantage of this opportunity simply visit the Fitness Studio and book an induction, following your induction your access card will be reconfigured allowing you to swipe into the studio at any time during opening hours.
During the Pilot project (August-December 2019) only University of Melbourne students currently enrolled in a Faculty of Fine Arts and Music course and UoM Southbank Campus Staff are eligible to use the Fitness Studio.
During the trial Pilot Period access to the Fitness Studio is provided at no charge.
The Fitness studio project has been specifically initiated to provide a facility on the Southbank campus for students and staff that are unable to easily access the fitness facilities provided at the Parkville Campus. The size of the facility also means that we need to limit use by others.
Please see the door of the Fitness Studio for this week’s staffing hours
Access to the room will only be provided after you have completed your induction with the MU Sport staff member. Access for Students and Staff will be via their student/staff card. You need to tap your card on the card reader outside the door prior to entry every time – even if someone is holding the door open for you. You may also need to use your student/staff card to access the entrance to the Performing Arts Building.
Every person that joins the Fitness Studio will receive an induction which will include a demonstration of how to use key pieces of equipment. Initially this will be a limited introduction to get you started.
The induction is a requirement for your access. The induction will also include our staff providing important information about our gym etiquette and how to get the most out of this new facility!
Depending on how busy our staff are, we hope to be able to arrange more tailored programs for each member from mid-September.
Inducted members will be able to access the Fitness Studio at the following times.
- Monday to Saturday: 7am – 10.30pm
- Sunday: 9am – 8.30pm
Qualified Fitness staff will be available for the following hours:
*During the initial 2 weeks additional MU Sport staff will be working at the fitness studio at various times in order to answer questions and promote use of the studio.
No. Your Fitness Studio membership only provides access to the Southbank facility.
If the Pilot Project is successful, then a fee will be charged for access in 2020. At this time a fee has not be determined, however the aim is always to keep students’ fees as low as possible!
